Government agrees move on antimicrobial resistance

Ireland’s government has signalled its agreement for a number of departments to join forces and set up a national action plan on controlling antimicrobial resistance.

An interdepartmental group to work out a four-year plan led by health minister Simon Harris and agriculture minister Michael Creed, was announced on 20 July.
